Despite continuous rocket fire since morning, Guardian declares ‘ceasefire holding’


Since the official ceasefire was announced at 9:00 this morning, dozens of rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza, representing a clear violation by Hamas.  Tzeva Adom (Red Alert) sirens (warning of incoming rocket fire) have been activated throughout the morning and early afternoon in Sderot, Netivot, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Rehovot, Rishon LeZion, Hadera, Haifa and elsewhere. 

The rocket fire elicited the following response from US Secretary of State John Kerry:

I cannot condemn strongly enough the actions of Hamas in so brazenly firing rockets in multiple numbers in the face of a goodwill effort to offer a ceasefire, in which Egypt and Israel worked together, that the international community strongly supports,

Yet, in a Guardian Live Blog entry posted about 2 hours ago, the blog’s editor Matthew Weaver declared the following:

The ceasefire is holding for now despite the launch of seven missiles from Gaza, Peter Beaumont reports from Beit Lahia.

In addition to the fact that Weaver significantly under-counted the number of rockets fired at Israel since the morning, do we really even need to note that the launch of even “seven missiles” from Gaza of course means that the ceasefire is NOT in fact holding?

  1. Priceless! The ceasefire is holding, except for the rockets being fired. Where would we be without these informative blogs?

  2. The only silver lining in all of this is that hopefully Peter B will decide to visit the Hamas tunnels shortly before our troops demolishes them.

  3. It’s clear that to the Guardian “cease fire” means that Israel ceases fire and terrorists are allowed to do whatever they want.

  4. Good Day !!!!!
